Give the garlic clove a good thump with the flat side of your knife. I used 2 small-med cloves. I prefer doing this about 10 minutes before using it in order to let the health promoting allicin to form. So, I let it sit while I do the rest of my cooking prep in general.
Slice the cherry tomatoes and mozzarella into bite sized pieces. You can use regular tomatoes and mozzarella as well. Read the label to see whether your cheese is vegetarian. Check my Tips section for more details.
Toast the bread. When making for my little one, I tend to be generous with the butter.
You can also use your toaster to make a dry toast. Would save more time and clean up :)
While still warm, rub the garlic on the bread surface. The aroma that follows - aah! Delish...
Now place the sliced cheese and tomatoes on top along with basil. You can drizzle a bit of Olive oil ( and/or balsamic) before serving.
